Barnby Moor is quite literally just off the A1 at the tip of North Nottinghamshire with Yorkshire, Derbyshire and Lincolnshire either side - so plenty to explore. Surrounded by the Dukeries, estates of five previous Dukes, with Sherwood Forest, Rufford, Thoresby, Welbeck and the 4,000 acre National Trust Clumber Park on our doorstep! The origins of the Pilgrim Fathers at nearby Scrooby and former 12th century monasteries Rufford & Newstead Abbeys, Southwell Minster, Lincoln Cathedral and the magnificent Chatsworth House are all within striking distance.
There's theatres, cinemas, art galleries and some top concerts to make the focus of your visit. Farm shops, parks and gardens galore with the renowned Hodsock Priory Snowdrops a highlight of the winter calendar just 5 minutes down the road. Interesting courses from butchery to bakery at the Welbeck School of Artisan Food with a chocolatier, cheesemaker and brewery on the estate.
